We’re Back!

At least the dolphins know how to survive:

Eight bottlenose dolphins that were washed out of their Mississippi aquarium pool during Hurricane Katrina have been found alive, huddled together in the fetid waters off Gulfport, Miss . . .

”These animals found us, they came back after Katrina . . . they came home,” said Moby Solangi, director of the Marine Life Oceanarium in Gulfport. ”All eight are together. It’s the most wonderful news” . . .

”We are very pleased to have found these animals and that they all stayed together,” said Teri Rowles, lead veterinarian with NOAA fisheries. She cautioned, however, that the animals were weak, underfed, and sick. ”We remain cautiously optimistic they will recover from this ordeal.”

I guess they liked the fish enough that they didn’t say “so long.”
